Meaning of the Muladhara chakra

Muladhara in Sanskrit means “root, support” . Its main function is survival and the associated keyword: I EXIST .

Muladhara is related to grounding with the Earth , it is connected with the will to live and gives vitality to the organism. The qualities that characterize it are determination, firmness, stability, self-esteem.

Unbalance of the chakra

The disharmonious functioning of the  Muladhara chakra  can lead to the development of various pathologies:  hemorrhoids , obesity,  constipation , sciatica,  arthritis ,  sexual disorders .

If there is an  excessive functioning  of this chakra, both thoughts and actions will be oriented towards the obsessive satisfaction of material needs and personal security, with a tendency to possessiveness and selfishness. The reactions to obstacles will be of  aggression, anger, jealousy, violence  or in any case a defensive attitude, linked to a lack of trust, in which there is always the fear of losing what gives security and a sense of well-being.

If, on the other hand, there is  insufficient functioning , there will be weakness and poor physical and emotional resistance, excessive worry, existential insecurity , lack of reference points. Every fact of daily life will become insurmountable: therefore we will prefer to give up the challenge, we will dream of more pleasant and less tiring conditions and we will develop an attitude of mental escape from existing reality.

If the upper chakras are more developed than the lower ones, you will have the feeling of being out of this world and you will experience a profound sense of strangeness and absolute and hopeless loneliness. If the energy block also affects the third chakra in addition to the first, one could find oneself in the presence of  eating disorders  such as anorexia .
